Holiday reindeer have dressed up this year. Under their shiny coat, traditional flavors of chocolate and peppermint take center stage.
Place chocolate into bowl; microwave 1 minute. Continue microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Cool 5 minutes.
Place 2/3 cup butter into another bowl; beat at medium speed 30 seconds. Add melted chocolate; continue beating until combined. Add sugar; beat until well mixed. Add egg, milk, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and peppermint extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time, on lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out using 5-inch reindeer cookie cutter. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are firm. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.
Spread glaze onto cookies. Sprinkle cookies with coarse grain sugar and tiny stars. Place silver dragées on each reindeer for the eye and harness.

I have a thing for peppermint and chocolate. Especially once the holidays roll around. I feel like it’s only acceptable to make chocolate mint treats during the holiday season, so maybe that makes it even more exciting.
